GED Testing Age Waiver
Typically the GED Test is only available to individuals seventeen (17) years of age and older.
Sixteen (16) year olds are able to take the GED Test if they are approved by the Colorado GED Office for a GED Age Waiver. All of the requirements for applying for the GED Age Waiver are listed in the Age Waiver Application. Individuals under the age of 16 may not apply for a GED Age Waiver.
